over a year ago in yemen, a u.s. drone operated by the cia unleashed a hellfire missile killing one of the most wanted terrorists in the world, anwar al-awlaki. the american-born cleric had been waging holy war against his own country. because he was a u.s. citizen, it was one of the most controversial drone strikes in the campaign against al qaeda. to this day, the question of how the cia zeroed in on awlaki in that distant desert land remains a mystery. some of that will be answered tonight, and you'll learn how an unlikely danish spy named morten storm managed to get inside awlaki's world and become one of his most trusted friends. and how, storm says, he helped lead that fatal missile to its target. >> anwar al-awlaki: as you send us your bombs, we will send you ours. >> logan: by the time of his death, anwar al-awlaki was at the top of the u.s. terrorist kill list. the muslim cleric had become notorious for his fiery internet sermons that incited attacks against america. >> awlaki: jihad against america is binding upon myself, just as it is binding on every other able muslim. >
